Eckardt Systems introduces a new spray nozzle system for manual lubrication: EOS Move. Requiring only little space the system is designed for stationary and mobile use and ergonomically optimizes the workplace.
Eckardt Systems, manufacturer of lubrication, cleaning and preservation systems for industrial production, introduces a new spray nozzle system for manual blank lubrication: EOS Move. In comparision with conventional systems EOS Move swaps roles, since it is the spray bar that moves – not the blank. This enables the entire process – blank insertion, blank lubrication and blank removal – to be conducted requiring significantly less working space, and the machine operator to work much more ergonomically.
Measuring ca. 2,20 x 1,60 x 1 m (H x L x W) and weighing some 500 kg in the standard version, the EOS Move system can be fixed on the floor or mounted on reels for mobile use. It processes blanks of up to 600 x 600 mm in size, the seating of which – as well as the entire system – can be adjusted according to individual user requirements. The standard configuration includes 2 x 6 spray nozzles attached to the spray bar.
All components on board
Just as in a scanner the spray bar traverses the blank surface and applies the lubricant. While reversing, the operator or roboter changes the blanks at freely selectable intervals. The oil reservoir/oil supply, exhaust equipment and control system are permanently attached to the machine. This also allows for flexible, customer-specific configurations, e.g. in the shape of several oil reservoirs connected „in series“. The system applies standard technology and components manufactured by Eckardt such as the EDS control unit introduced in early 2018.
„On site one is often confronted with adverse conditions while manually operating a lubrication system,“ says Daniel Assmann, head of the sales department at Eckardt Systems. „This is usually the case when the blanks move through the machine and the operator has to insert and remove them while taking a less than ideal working position. In the new EOS Move we have eradicated this flaw, since it is no longer required to move back and forth in tight spaces and change one’s grip in a rather cumbersome way.“
